The layout will be in operation from 10 AM to 3 PM. Set in the 1950s, the miniature railroad depicts the Santa Fe from San Diego to Colton during the transition era. At Oceanside the main line turns inland (as the prototype did prior to 1900) and travels through Fallbrook, Temecula Canyon, and Perris before reaching Colton. All operations are controlled by smart-phones. Installation of a state-of-the-art signal system is nearing completion.

The popular Trains4Kids HO scale layout will be open to all ages from 10 AM to 3 PM. Up to four kids can simultaneously run an HO train on the full scenic layout.
